Is It Clutter or Squalor?
Evaluate You Clutter Problem
Psychiatrists measure degrees of squalor on a 1-4 scale.
See where you fit on the scale.
- The sign of first-degree squalor might be
that you are embarrassed for others to see your mess, but you would
still let people in the house. You are getting behind on tasks that you
would normally manage, like laundry and dishes. You are not the tidy
person you once were. Little piles are starting to emerge and your
disorganization is starting to affect your life. Things are just getting
out of hand and becoming unmanageable.
Second-degree squalor- You might start making excuses to
discourage people from entering your house. Signs would include losing
the use of normal household items like your bed, table, television, or
telephone, because the piles have expanded to cover the items up. You
start to develop new methods of moving around your house, as normal
movement is impended by your piles of stuff.
Third-degree squalor - Just the thought of someone
seeing your mess causes you great stress. At this stage, you have all
the above, plus you have rotting food and animal feces and/or urine in
the house, and
this is the rule not the
exception.You cannot cope with the growing
mess. Essential household repairs may not be done, because you are too
afraid to let a repairperson see your house.
- At this stage, you have all the
above, plus you have human feces and/or urine in your house that is not
in the toilet.
Remember - You are NOT a bad person, just a bad
housekeeper and you deserve better!
